We got home from our September adventure on Sunday afternoon, but it's been pretty crazy around here since then, as you can imagine. To make things worse, on the third-last day of our holiday, while I was sitting in a beautiful anchorage looking at this....
... I developed a serious fever, and Michael had to get me in to Ganges, where a nice man from the Coast Guard station drove me to the hospital.... where I was diagnosed with a pretty severe bacterial infection which turned up on my right leg, of all places. So - I have been going to the hospital every day (Saturday in Ganges, then Sunday, Monday, and in about 10 minutes, here in Victoria) for an hour of IV antibiotics -- and when I'm home I've been ordered to have this leg up at about a 30-degree angle for at least 4 hours a day! I guess the universe decided I hadn't had enough rest yet?? The prognosis is that it may be another week before I'm good as new.
By the way, here's what happens when you hit the wake of a big freighter unexpectedly:
I have lots more great pics, and hope to get on here more soon, but I am happy to be home, and getting back into the fall routine!
